obama and the emerging tyranny. it was a large defense of the people against an overbearing and oppressive state. >> if you hear the rhetoric, they are talking about marble. they loved petitions. it shows them a majority want this. he even talked about the mandate. the mandate from the people to do whatever he wants to do. he has a mandate to act as president and not rewrite the constitution. >> you are frightened. >> absolutely. the government is responsible for some of the horrors of our history. >> americans flocked to gun stores to stock up. sales rising dramatically as the owners hope to preempt a possible ban. there are four times as many gun retailers as there are mcdonald's restaurants. in europe, we have accepted the idea that only the state and only the authorities should legitimately use violence. >> my response is that people in europe have been kowtowed to the point over the years that they don't know that they are missing all of these rights that we have over here. we have had that right for so long, it is ingrained in the american spirit and the american cultu
's absolutely right. everyone is talking now about al qaeda's new refuge across northern africa but how is the u.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it
. opponents of gun control will be meeting and talking coordinating their efforts on a regular basis. the question how effectively will they do it? the advantage of using obama for america is, is has a gigantic list of people and know a lot about them and how to motivate them and get them out. bill: i still don't know if republicans can counter that. what they found out in november, these people know how to reach their voters! that republicans could not even account for. >> but remember the purpose here. it is not to get that person out to vote. it is to get that person to influence a member of congress to go their way. my point is this, if you're a member of congress who is republican you're sitting here saying these are not local people whose votes we are trying to get. these are partisans. i dompblt need to pay attention. if you're a democrat in awkward place, red district, red state and put awkward place by your president you're saying what the heck are they doing? don't they understand? i can't be for this. bill: we'll watch the points you make especially on the ethics matter. a

in our d.c. bureau. james, we talked about this as a very fluid, very dangerous situation. what do we now know? >> reporter: jenna, good afternoon. white house officials are now saying president obama is receiving regular updates on this situation which remains as you say ongoing and sensetive. the numbers involved here have varied wildly with the latest from algeria's state news service now saying nearly 100 of 132 hostages seized have been freed. that word comes after algerian security forces launched a helicopter assault on the complex yesterday. 18 of the islamist militants have been reported killed. however there are reports two filipino hostages have died. earlier today britain's prime minister confirmed the death of one britain. he said london received no advance notice of the helicopter raid. >> when i spoke to the algerian prime minister later last night he told me this first operation was complete but this is a large and complex site and they are still pursuing terrorists and possibly some of the hostages in other areas of the site. the algerian prime minister has just told me t
